Play the Devil

Saturday, July 15 @ 4:45 pm - 6:30 pm

 or  

Directed by Maria Govan
89 min | 2016 | Trinidad and Tobago | Not Rated

Writer/director Maria Govan’s complex drama follows Greg (Petrice Jones), a high-school student in Trinidad, as he tries to understand life, love, and how the hell he fits into either one.

Greg lives in a poor town with his grandma and tough older brother. He is a quiet boy, taking care of his fatherless household while studying hard for a college scholarship. He soon attracts the attention of James (Gareth Jenkins), the father of one his friends, and their playful romance starts to wreak havoc on Greg’s psyche. He is heavily torn about the way to live his life, from what he wants to study to his complicated feelings for James. Their fraught relationship comes to a crisis on the night of the Carnival in the town and epitomizes the dilemma of dealing with a confusing and forbidden romance.

The frustration Greg experiences because of his urges, coupled with the responsibility he feels for his friends and family, makes it hard not to empathize with the battle raging in his head. Play the Devil provides an in-depth view of the clash between what we feel and what we think and the impact that conflict has on our well-being.
